RE: Special inspection and masonry allowables

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The use of 50% of allowable is out. Special inspection is now mandatory for
just about everything. There are different levels of quality assurance
required, depending on the situation. Level 1 just consists of submittal
reviews. Level 2 involves periodic special inspection, and Level 3 involves
continuous special inspection. Most situations will be Level 2.

What is the status of the special inspection/.5
masonry allowable reduction factor and the current
codes?  Apparently it has disappeared from IBC and
ACI530.  Doesn't that leave a hole in the standards if
a building isn't subject to special inspection?

Thanks in advance,
Jim Wilson
